Transcript of "Sampling distributions stat ppt @ bec doms"

  1. 1. Sampling Distributions
  2. 2. Chapter Goals <ul><li>After completing this chapter, you should be able to: </li></ul><ul><li>Define the concept of sampling error </li></ul><ul><li>Determine the mean and standard deviation for the sampling distribution of the sample mean, x </li></ul><ul><li>Determine the mean and standard deviation for the sampling distribution of the sample proportion, p </li></ul><ul><li>Describe the Central Limit Theorem and its importance </li></ul><ul><li>Apply sampling distributions for both x and p </li></ul>_ _ _ _
  3. 3. Sampling Error <ul><li>Sample Statistics are used to estimate Population Parameters </li></ul><ul><li>ex: X is an estimate of the population mean, μ </li></ul><ul><li>Problems: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Different samples provide different estimates of the population parameter </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sample results have potential variability, thus sampling error exits </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Calculating Sampling Error <ul><li>Sampling Error: </li></ul><ul><li>The difference between a value (a statistic) computed from a sample and the corresponding value (a parameter) computed from a population </li></ul><ul><li>Example: (for the mean) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>where: </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Review <ul><li>Population mean: Sample Mean: </li></ul>where: μ = Population mean x = sample mean x i = Values in the population or sample N = Population size n = sample size
  6. 6. Example If the population mean is μ = 98.6 degrees and a sample of n = 5 temperatures yields a sample mean of = 99.2 degrees, then the sampling error is
  7. 7. Sampling Errors <ul><li>Different samples will yield different sampling errors </li></ul><ul><li>The sampling error may be positive or negative </li></ul><ul><ul><li>( may be greater than or less than μ) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The expected sampling error decreases as the sample size increases </li></ul>
  8. 8. Sampling Distribution <ul><li>A sampling distribution is a distribution of the possible values of a statistic for a given size sample selected from a population </li></ul>
  9. 9. Developing a Sampling Distribution <ul><li>Assume there is a population … </li></ul><ul><li>Population size N=4 </li></ul><ul><li>Random variable, x, is age of individuals </li></ul><ul><li>Values of x: 18, 20, 22, 24 (years) </li></ul>A B C D

  11. 11. Now consider all possible samples of size n=2 16 possible samples (sampling with replacement) (continued) Developing a Sampling Distribution 16 Sample Means

  13. 13. Summary Measures of this Sampling Distribution: Developing a Sampling Distribution (continued)

  15. 15. If the Population is Normal (THEOREM 6-1) If a population is normal with mean μ and standard deviation σ, the sampling distribution of is also normally distributed with and
  16. 16. z-value for Sampling Distribution of x <ul><li>Z-value for the sampling distribution of : </li></ul>where: = sample mean = population mean = population standard deviation n = sample size
  17. 17. Finite Population Correction <ul><li>Apply the Finite Population Correction if: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the sample is large relative to the population </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(n is greater than 5% of N) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>and… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sampling is without replacement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Then </li></ul></ul></ul>
  18. 18. Sampling Distribution Properties <ul><li>(i.e. is unbiased ) </li></ul>Normal Population Distribution Normal Sampling Distribution (has the same mean)
  19. 19. Sampling Distribution Properties <ul><li>For sampling with replacement : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>As n increases, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>decreases </li></ul></ul>Larger sample size Smaller sample size (continued)
  20. 20. If the Population is not Normal <ul><li>We can apply the Central Limit Theorem : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Even if the population is not normal , </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>… sample means from the population will be approximately normal as long as the sample size is large enough </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>… and the sampling distribution will have </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>and </li></ul></ul>
  21. 21. Central Limit Theorem n↑ As the sample size gets large enough… the sampling distribution becomes almost normal regardless of shape of population
  22. 22. If the Population is not Normal Population Distribution Sampling Distribution (becomes normal as n increases) Central Tendency Variation (Sampling with replacement) Larger sample size Smaller sample size (continued) Sampling distribution properties:
  23. 23. How Large is Large Enough? <ul><li>For most distributions, n > 30 will give a sampling distribution that is nearly normal </li></ul><ul><li>For fairly symmetric distributions, n > 15 </li></ul><ul><li>For normal population distributions, the sampling distribution of the mean is always normally distributed </li></ul>
  24. 24. Example <ul><li>Suppose a population has mean μ = 8 and standard deviation σ = 3 . Suppose a random sample of size n = 36 is selected. </li></ul><ul><li>What is the probability that the sample mean is between 7.8 and 8.2? </li></ul>
  25. 25. Example <ul><li>Solution: </li></ul><ul><li>Even if the population is not normally distributed, the central limit theorem can be used (n > 30) </li></ul><ul><li>… so the sampling distribution of is approximately normal </li></ul><ul><li>… with mean = 8 </li></ul><ul><li>… and standard deviation </li></ul>(continued)

  27. 27. Population Proportions, p <ul><li>p = the proportion of population having </li></ul><ul><li>some characteristic </li></ul><ul><li>Sample proportion ( p ) provides an estimate </li></ul><ul><li>of p: </li></ul><ul><li>If two outcomes, p has a binomial distribution </li></ul>
  28. 28. Sampling Distribution of p <ul><li>Approximated by a normal distribution if: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>where </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> and </li></ul></ul>(where p = population proportion) Sampling Distribution P( p ) .3 .2 .1 0 0 . 2 .4 .6 8 1 p
  29. 29. z-Value for Proportions <ul><li>If sampling is without replacement and n is greater than 5% of the population size, then must use the finite population correction factor : </li></ul>Standardize p to a z value with the formula:
  30. 30. Example <ul><li>If the true proportion of voters who support Proposition A is p = .4, what is the probability that a sample of size 200 yields a sample proportion between .40 and .45? </li></ul>i.e.: if p = .4 and n = 200, what is P(.40 ≤ p ≤ .45) ?
  31. 31. Example <ul><li>if p = .4 and n = 200, what is </li></ul><ul><li> P(.40 ≤ p ≤ .45) ? </li></ul>(continued) Find : Convert to standard normal:
